I have seen this a couple of times now (although I may be crazy and it really is only once), but in all honesty, if UE does nothing more than hold serve at home, they should avoid the PIG. In my preseason picks, I had Drake, Valpo, MSU, and ISUb in the Thursday games. Outside of Valpo (who hasn’t “fallen apart” yet, and will now probably avoid the PIG. Looking at you Bradley), the other three on this list all have one thing in common. They have all currently dropped a game at home. Defending the Ford should be the battle cry of this team. If they win one or two on the road, that’s just icing on the cake. But I do believe that 9-9 will safely keep them out of the PIG.
And before anyone says anything about it, yes, MSU beat INSb at TH last night, but does anyone really believe that the game against Valpo is the only one MSU will lose at home?
I agree that 9-9 should keep us out of Thursday, but would like to win some road games to give them some road confidence since "Arch Madness" is not held at the Ford Center.
